Very scary!@ This is why we must stop immigration immediately! It makes NO sense to allow this to happen in 2018!

Unsuccessful animal rescue tonight.

Was leaving the gym and spotted a downed possum twitching on the other side of the driveway. Had to keep going so as not block the exit. Made a U turn down the road, looked up where to take injured wildlife on the phone then went back only to find another gym member checking on the possum and another one I didn't see. Both possums dead by the time I got back. Poor little buggers.

I think Reddit might be bad for me.

But I dunno. I've learned a shit-ton of interesting things from browsing there, with a fair bit of it being genuinely beneficial to me. But holy crap do I waste a lot of time on a lot of nothing to get to that stuff.

I don't know how to quantify the two to weigh one against the other.

Is it actually wasted time or were you at least entertained for most of the duration?

Solar is the only kind of eclipse worth going out of one's way for tbh. The moon just goes orange with a lunar, which is kind of cool, but the solar is a light show of the highest quality.

Apparently cloud cover blocked the total eclipse down at Sydney. I'm just annoyed I was too tired . We had great weather up here at Brisbane.
